Picture and Enhancement Catalog


Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1971-10-09 to 1972-10-17


This data set consists of a magnetic tape of the picture and enhancement catalog for Mariner 9. The tape was created on an IBM 360 computer. Each record on the tape is divided into three sections. Section 1, level 1, occurs one time for each picture. Two of the fields it contains, PL count (Image Processing Laboratory count) and MTV count (Mariner 71 TV-picture count), reflect the number of entries in the other two sections. Segment 2, level 2, contains entries which reflect the number and type of processing of a picture by the Image Processing Laboratory. Segment 3, level 2, contains entries which reflect the number and type of MTVS frames on which a picture exists (usually three or four).
